I’ve been lurking for a few weeks, but finally decided to join in the fun. SO has the ring and is in the process of planning the proposal. Because of his inability to be sneaky, I have a pretty good feeling that he’ll be proposing on or around our anniversary in June. Even though that’s LESS THAN THREE MONTHS AWAY! EEEP! I keep trying to keep calm and enjoy the pre-gaged state, and it is NOT going well. My job is a ghost town right now, and I spend so much time daydreaming about the upcoming changes as a way to cope with 8 hours of boredom.
I need to find a new hobby! One with mental stimulation preferrably. I already crochet, but I can easily drift into proposal daydreams while doing that.
Let me hear your best suggestions! How are you taking your mind off of the fact that the biggest day of your life so far is (seemingly) so far away?

pinterest helps me contain my excitement and channel it into there. While trying not to think about the ifs, ands, and buts I enjoy craft too. Knitting, crochet, felting, finding a use for buttons, practically anywhere….

I am in your boat! Practically the same thing – know he has the ring, waiting it out, trying to not daydream. It is eating. me. alive.
Hopefully we will both get our proposals soon so we can get on with the planning!!! Good luck 🙂

Me too! I’m in the same boat. After my boyfriend planned and booked a cabin trip for us in mid June, I joked that he better not propose when I’m all sweaty after a hike. He seemed genuinely concerned and tried to find out why I’m against it. I said I’d like to look nice in my just engaged photos. And he said, no photos for you then.
I know how you feel, it is so hard to wait. He already has the ring; we picked it out together. He has been holding onto it for a couple of months so he can think of a special proposal.
I’ve been reading, exercising (planning to lose some weight in order to be healthier and to fit in a smaller bridal gown when I go dress shopping after the proposal), and catching up on tv shows, playing video games, and lurking on this site. You gave me a great idea: I really should take up crocheting or knitting again. You could crochet and watch a tv show or have something else on. Oh, I also bake and cook occasionally when I feel like it, which is not enough since my SO eats all his snickerdoodles in 2 -3 days.
I hope other people come up with wonderful ideas.
